Will a Bose be good enough?

I have a large family room (20x16) with 12 foot ceilings. It is adjacent and open to the eat-in kitchen. I would like to put some kind of stereo on a sofa table that is pretty much smack in the middle of these two rooms.

Would one of those Bose radios be powerful enough to provide music for both rooms?

Depends on how loud you want it. If it is for background music, it likely will be adequate.

RE: Will a Bose be good enough?

I think so. I have an older Bose Wave with CD, and it cranks pretty good. The best thing about it is that there is virtually no distortion, even when the volume is very high. I believe that Bose lets you try it risk-free for a period of time. They used to, anyway.

RE: Will a Bose be good enough?

My experience with rooms with high ceilings is that it doesn't take much to be too loud, voices included.
So most any player would be sufficient, although the acoustics wouldn't be that good, unless lots of soft floor coverings/furniture/wall hangings.
